      About to be disconnected

      I will be disconnected on the 15th as I can't mange the subscription this month. I asked Sky to delay to the 26th (payday), but no luck. My fault, no reason why they should delay.
      Anyway, I have an HD + box, could anyone please tell me what I will be able to see for the 10 days before I can pay - or should I just disconnect and plug into the wall TV arial socket (my set does not have an inbuilt freeview though). I think I saw somewhere that the box will automatically switch to show the Sky freesat channels?
      Many thanks,
      Embarrassed from London.

      You will be better continuing to use the Sky box. You will be able to receive a fair amount of freesat programs as long as you keep your card in the box. See here, FREESAT from Sky - What can I watch? a Sky card automatically becomes a Freesat card on ceasing the Sky subscription. You will still be able to view free to air HD channels, but you will not get any of the Sky+ functions of the box.
